Mr. Sturman's novel gives a true depiction of both the beauty and brutality of Africa. His beautiful descriptions brought back memories of my time spent in Tanzania. He did a great job weaving suspense, love, and the human spirit into this engaging novel. A must read for anyone with a place in their heart for this dark continent.

This geopolitical suspense novel with a romantic twist grabs the reader's attention at the outset and does not let go until the last page is turned. The author displays a keen sensitivity to both the intimate details of everday life with characters the reader comes to actually care about and the realities of the ongoing tragedy that marks much of current-day southern Africa. Although these realities clash with 'politically correct' American sensibilities about what our media has spoon-fed us regarding events there, uncomfortable similarities remain. "Blood of Gansbaai" reminds us that ethnic cleansing is not limited to African tribes versus Afrikkaners, or Orthodox Serbs versus Bosnian Muslims, but also has its malevolent fingerprints on America's "Westward Ho!!!" Manifest Destiny (at the expense of Native Americans). I highly recommend this book as a gripping, intelligent and ultimately satisfying read.

As a person who has been intrigued by Africa in recent years but has never traveled to the Dark Continent, I was transported by the illumination of the South African state by the author. They offered a brutally beautiful view of the region that was juxtaposed with a savagely brutal view of its racial tensions and the AIDS crises that effects it on a large scale. The fictional political, social, and raw adventurous intrigue that follows a white South African Native as she ponders the AIDS vaccine while racing from her dark past aa well as her countries to a future of hope is one that is told in an honest way and strips down the factions of good and evil to show their true motivations and deeper personas. A great modern African tale and a journey of the conscience, and heart that strikes at the soul of our time!

This novel takes you on a journey into Africa and is one of the most moving stories I've read in years. This would make a great movie and I cannot wait till it becomes one. I think actress Charlize Theron would be perfect playing the lead role as Jessica in this story. Both are South African women working to end the HIV / AIDS epidemic. It's a great summer read and if you're a director or producer, make this a movie please.

Once I started to read this book I could not put it down. There were so many twists and turns which is made the book so entertaining. In additon the book brings attention to the AIDS issues and brutality that exists in Africa today. Overall the book was very well written and I would strongly recommend the book to anyone.
